MK-677 Vs HGH Vs Peptides – Which Is Better And Why?

MK-677 Vs HGH

The majority of competitive bodybuilders and physique athletes view growth hormone as a necessary stepping stone in their journey towards achieving physical perfection and maximizing their muscle growth and fat loss potential.

However, REAL HGH is simply unaffordable to most.

With a pharmacy-grade kit being upwards of $600-1000 in some instances (depending on the brand), it can literally be equivalent to making a decent car payment each month to maintain your daily HGH dosing protocol.

Consequently, HGH is a drug that is essentially only available to those with a very high level of disposable income, not to mention those who are well connected in the bodybuilding world, as sourcing legitimate HGH is a difficult task in itself.

The black market for HGH is extremely unreliable, and as such, 90% of those who think they have tried “HGH” have actually probably just been injecting sugar water or GH-releasing peptides laced with anti-diuretics.

The cost of drugs in the world of bodybuilding easily crosses the threshold of insanity, and when adding a consistent HGH expense to your wallet comes into play, that is essentially where your line of sensible spending will go out the window if you want to run a dose high enough to notice even a mildly significant benefit from it.

However, now with MK-677 individuals can replicate the results they would get from a decent dose of HGH, without having to take out a second mortgage on their home.

I’ve personally seen IGF-1 levels in several different individuals’ blood work (the most accurate method of determining GH levels within the body) taking MK-677 reaching the equivalent of at least 2-3 IU daily dose of generic growth hormone.

These results were achieved at a fraction of the cost of exogenous GH (literally 1/20th of the cost).

Of all the various GH elevating drugs at our disposal, MK-677 is easily pound for pound the best bang for your buck.

That isn't to take anything away from GH though.

If you have a great reputable source of Generic GH that tests as well as pharma grade GH, and you don't have to spend a fortune on it (the price is reasonable), there are definitely scenarios in which using GH would be more beneficial.

Typically those would include scenarios where storage isn't an issue (you don't live with people who will care if you have kits of GH in your fridge), you don't mind injecting it, you don't want the hunger side effect that comes from MK-677, or you want to reach an IGF-1 level higher than MK-677 can achieve alone (with a moderate-high dosage of good GH).

Or the alternative of course if you just have tons of disposable income and throwing a small fortune into pharma grade GH is no problem, then by all means.

There are scenarios in which MK-677 can rival IGF-1 levels of high dose pharma grade GH, but it all comes down to personal preference at the end of the day.

Bang for your buck/convenience of use for 9/10 people will be in favour of MK-677.

MK-677 Vs Peptides

Obviously, for the needle averse, the fact that MK-677 has a high level of oral bioavailability and GH peptides don’t already is a huge benefit in favor of MK-677.

Also, you only need to take MK-677 once per day due to its 24 hour half life.

Among the various other growth hormone releasing peptides, they all must be used 3-6 times per day in order to keep GH levels elevated for a decent period of time.

Although short duration GH peptides can be effective, even die hard geared out of their mind bodybuilders would admit that pinning your abdominal fat with GH peptides every 3 hours, 6x per day, is a colossal pain in the ass.

Not to mention the fact that GH peptides need to be timed around your eating schedule so that you don’t have elevated blood glucose levels when you inject them, which would render them dramatically less effective.

You don’t need to worry about ANY of these things at all in any capacity when dosing MK-677.

Another benefit of MK-677 is that it doesn’t cause pituitary desensitization like other GHRP’s do.

Many GH peptides will cause desensitization within a short period of time. To what degree will vary depending on which compound you are injecting, but some of them, such as Hexarelin, begin to cause desensitization by the 2nd dose, and within a couple weeks are extremely less potent than they were the first time you injected them into your body.

MK-677 exhibits no such downside and the research actually has proved that MK-677 can become more effective with long-term use.

One clinical study measured an increase in IGF-1 levels by 60% at the 6 month point and 72.9% after 12 months of treatment.

Some GH peptides (GHRP-6 most notably) are notorious for stimulating your appetite.

After injection, ghrelin is released in your body, resulting in an extremely dramatic increase in your hunger.

MK-677 has the same effect in your body, however, the effect is much longer lasting with MK-677 as it releases GH in a pulsatile manner around the clock for 24 hours.

This proves to be a very beneficial attribute for those looking to gain muscle and pack on size as the appetite increase MK-677 provides is nothing short of substantial.

  1. You should mention age-related response. For example, it has been shown in older test subjects that the peptides don’t even produce a response. Age 35 and up show very little response to the GHRP peptides and over 45 shows zero response. Whereas MK-677 has shown efficacy in patients who were in their 80s. So another reason MK-677 is possible a better solution for many people.

  2. Hi Derek, Is it possible some people don’t respond to mk-677? I am a 64 year old male and have been testing me for about 2 1/2 months now. I take 20mg. at night before bed. Had my IGF-1 level checked before and just recent, it has stayed at or around 132 ng/ml which is normal in my age group. Shouldn’t it have gone up by now? I got the product from Narrows so it should be legit. It seems to help me sleep better and I seem to be retaining a little water,but I don’t really have the hunger issues everyone talks about. Is it a waste of money for me to be taking this or can there be other benefits for me or maybe I have not been taking it long enough? Any thoughts would be helpful. I am on doctor prescribed TRT. I keep my levels between 6-700. Free test is above normal range, Estrodiol is a little low at 9. I do dabble with sarms, mostly Rad140 (20mg./day) and or LGD 4033(10mg./day). I do have some health issues, the main one being that I have no colon. I had to have my entire colon removed 9 years ago due to ulcerative colitis. Nothing has been easy since so I look for any advantage I can find. I now have what is called a J-pouch so I would not have to have an outside colostomy bag. Have to take medications to slow down my digestive track plus daily antibiotics for chronic pouchitis which I know is not a good thing to do BUT I really have no choice. Sorry I got long winded there but any suggestions or advice on the mk would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Ray

    1. Consider ProvedPeptides.com with sublingual admin and then making a judgment after.

      While MK-677 will effectively stimulate the secretion of growth hormone in those with a functioning hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis in most cases, there are certain scenarios in which it is ineffective.

      Individuals who have a non-functioning hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis
      Individuals who are unable to secrete growth hormone
      Individuals who simply do not respond to MK-677 at all
      Approximately 30% of children with PGHD will not be able to restore healthy GH and IGF-1 levels with MK-677 treatment

      1. Thank you for the reply. I was looking at some more of your info on mk-677 and saw that taking insulin memetics will lower IGF-1 levels. I have been taking Slin pills from EA since before I started on the mk. Could this be the reason my IGF-1 levels have not changed?? If that is the case would the mk be doing me any good ? Should I stop taking that while on the mk? You also mentioned trying sublingual, Can that be done by opening up the capsules and putting the powder under my tongue to dissolve and then take a drink of water? I’m only asking because I bought 4 bottles of capsules and don’t want to waste them. I really appreciate your time in answering all my questions. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Ray

  3. Hey Derek, I was just curious as to what the highest igf-1 levels were that you saw in people’s bloodwork who were taking mk-677?

    Thanks a lot man, and please keep pumping out the solid content!

  4. just found this site and looking for some alternatives for growth due to cost. I did take real growth a couple years ago . I was taking 4 IUS a day. How would this compare and would i be happy with it in the long term. Also looking for some test or alternatives for that(peptides) if possible. Any thoughts?
